Luxury French Skincare for Everyday Ladies – Votre Vu

When it comes to your skin you should care, and care deeply.

It was not until I hit my 30’s that I started to use facial skin care products and that was a huge mistake. I’d had a few cosmetic procedures to help get rid of some aspects of my skin that I absolutely hated, and that had a transformative effect on my confidence, but I was completely unaware that establishing a great daily skincare routine could also work wonders. This revelation came about when my friend and I were discussing a website she came across which talked about creating your own cbd skincare brand. While it wasn’t something I was really interested in at the time, it did open my eyes to using skincare products and that I should have started years ago. But it is NOT too late! If you are concerned about a lack of naturality then you may want to look at some natural looking foundations too. You may find the Thin Lizzy Concealer blends well and doesn’t look cakey. It’s ranked the best acne concealer on quite a few comparisons as well.

Using a day cream, washing your face and applying serums and eye creams not only makes you feel better at the time, but it helps preserve your skin for the future. Use these good cosmetics and then with the thx silk pillowcase effect will be better

We get one face – so let’s face it – and take care of it

Votre Vu is a French skincare line that is what your everyday lady is looking for.

We ladies need skincare products that work, but one’s that also smell good. But more importantly, ones’s that aren’t filled with weird or scary ingredients.

Votre Vu’s products are inspired by the French. The bountiful and bio-diverse regions of France gave them the inspiration to create products with extracts that are native to France – but more importantly products that are healthy, bio-powered and deliver beautiful results for our skin.

Some of the top sellers from the Votre Vu line are their Best Regards products. I tried out their Best Regards Hydrating Caviar Sérum and the Best Regards Restorative Day Creme.

Best Regards Restorative Day Creme

If you are looking for a product that is for normal to dry skin then this is going to be your new go-to day cream.

It softens, smooths and helps protect normal-to-dry skin from premature aging. Thie concentrated French creme is handcrafted with caviar, select essential oils, plant extracts and botanical elements.

Some of my favorite ingredients are

Caviar Extract

Loaded with vitamins, micro-elements, amino acids and proteins, this nourishing caviar extract speeds up the natural production of collagen, and helps keep skin firm by providing an extremely high level of hydration.

Grape (Vitis Vinifera) Seed Oil

This light, quick-absorbing, soothing oil is rich in essential fatty acids and linoleic acid content, which helps to increase skin’s elasticity.

Wild Yam (Dioscorea Villosa) Root Extract

The powers of wild yam have long been heralded by traditional cultures for its ability to treat symptoms of irritability and stress. When used in skin care, this extract has been shown to help maintain moisture balance and stimulate cellular metabolism.

Best Regards Crème does not contain any toxins, parabens, artificial colors, GMOs, triclosan, talc, gluten, sulfates or phthalates. Votre Vu does not test any products on animals.

The Best Regards Day Creme is perfect for general moisturizing needs. It smell is light and comforting. It doesn’t leave a heavy odor behind, but smells appealing at the same time. As a woman in my 30’s I am always trying to keep my skin as youthful as possible and trying to prevent early signs of aging and wrinkles. By using a potent day creme I am able to keep my skin fresh and healthy – which are some key factors to maintaining a youthful look.

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, women are asking for beauty products that can be used by an average women. You will not go wring with a gift from Votre Vu

Best Regards Hydrating Caviar Sérum

For women who are looking for that special extra product, look no further. The Best Regards Hydrating Caviar Sérum from Votre Vu is a silky anti-aging formula infused with caviar extract, drenches skin in proteins, essential fatty acids and minerals. Designed to help reduce fine lines while enhancing elasticity, this superbly hydrating treatment generously filled with phyto-essential extracts works to deliver visibly firmer, resilient and radiant skin.

Some of my favorite ingredients are

Cogongrass (Imperata Cylindrica) Root Extract

Known for its healing and antibacterial properties, cogongrass root extract is an excellent skin conditioner.

Vitamin E (Tocopheryl) Acetate

A form of Vitamin E, Tocopheryl Acetate is a powerful antioxidant which protects the skin against stress. In a skin care regimen, this power ingredient conditions and moisturizes as it protects.

Ylang Ylang (Cananga Odorata) Oil

Powerful for mind, body and spirit, this calming floral extract has excellent anti-aging benefits, including the ability to help soften skin and promote firmness – my friends highly recommend ylang ylang oil.

Best Regards Sérum does not contain any toxins, parabens, artificial colors, GMOs, triclosan, talc, gluten, sulfates or phthalates. Votre Vu does not test any products on animals.

MamatheFox is in love with this amazing product. I have been using it daily and feel like I can tell a difference in my skin in only a weeks time. I would lean towards the “dry” skin side, but this can be due to the harsh winters in Ohio. The bitter cold can cause our skin to pull and feel more dry than it actually is.

Having been using the Votre Vu line, my skin is not hurting in the mornings like it did previously. I truly think this is due to these 2 products. While yes, sometimes I feel dry at times, it has decreased significantly. I use the Hydrating Caviar Serum in the mornings. After it sets in for a couple minutes I then apply the Day Creme over it. I apply it with my fingertips in a very soft circular motion – always being aware of my eyes and never pulling on the skin around them. Try applying in upward strokes as to not help gravity pull your skin down. This is a wonderful trick I found out and honestly think it’s very true.

Yorba Organics

People are precious. What a beautiful and loving company motto. Yorba Organics is the organic skincare line you have been looking for. While many companies may be organic, they fall short in other sections, like green practices or not considering cruelty-free ingredients. Yorba Organics made sure to structure their entire company and development around creating products for adults and children without making any compromises.

They are certificated with the following: Organic Cosmetic, PETA cruelty-free and vegan, PhytoTrade Africa Accredited Partner, and USDA Organic.


Some of my favorite things about Yorba Organics is that they harvest their ingredients in the wild! They are sustainable naturally and don’t require fertilizers or chemicals to regrow once harvested. Better for the earth and better for you. They search the globe high and low, in remote forests and jungles to find the right ingredients for their products. They will not settle for just any old ingredient. They do this to locate high concentrations of beneficial ingredients, and it has paid off.

Their key ingredients are: Aloe Vera, Bamboo, Baobab, Kalahari Melon, Kigelia, Mafura & Marula

This Mama’s Experience


I was able to try out their shampoo, conditioner, face wash, clay wash, moisturizer and body lotion. Here are my thoughts and tips based on my experience.

These are products are really, honest organic. They have a slight tan tint to most of them. At first I thought it had a low amount of foundation in the moisturizer because of the coloring. After talking to a company rep I was told that they do not use any additives to alter the natural colors. The color you see is the true color of the natural ingredients. Pretty cool, huh?! After using it for a while now I can say it will not effect the coloring of your face. It soaks in just like a true moisturizer should. The moisturizer goes way farther than I expected. Typically with organic products I feel like I have to use more to get the results I desire. With moisturizers in the past that are organic I take a nickel size to cover my face & decolletage. With Yorba Organics I was shocked my first time using it. I had squirted out way too much. It was rich, creamy and covered my face and neck with such a small quantity. This is a product that is really high in value based on it’s low price of $16.95.

The shampoo and conditioner is made with Marula Oil, “Marula Oil is renowned for its cleansing and refreshing properties. It also provides protection against free radicals and helps to repair the skin. Marula Oil has a pH very close to our skin pH so it is mild and gentle enough to be used on even the most sensitive of skins”Yorba’s Website

I loved how the shampoo gave a slight lather, soapy feel that is very hard to achieve in an organic product without SLS (sulfates). The conditioner had no lather or soapy feel, so I used more than I probably need. I like to really feel my hair coated with conditioner as if I am giving it a mask treatment with every use. Their conditioner does not achieve this, but I know that the thick feeling is not needed for it to truly moisturize my hair. The ingredients stand for themselves and you don’t need to use a higher volume to achieve the results you desire. I know this now by how my hair looks and feels after using their shampoo and conditioner set for a while now.

The Exfoliating Clay Wash is such a fun product. This body wash is a creamy scrub with a lovely natural clay color. It goes on smoothly and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. This clay wash features Kalahari Melon Oil. “Kalahari Melon Oil has regenerative properties and helps to restructure skin cell walls. With high levels of essential fatty acids, it also leaves the skin supple and hydrated after use. Along with a high fatty acid content, Kalahari Melon is also rich in oils, protein, carbohydrates, minerals and nutrients that all act to reduce skin stress, hydrate and pH balance skin”Yorba’s Wesbite

Face cleansers can be tricky for me. I use eye makeup and often forget to use eye make remover before washing my face. Past organic face washes that I have tried never come close to taking off my eye makeup. With Yorba Organics I didn’t even consider it to take off my eye makeup, but it did! I mean some days there is some left, but as a whole I am shocked at how well it works. One of the key ingredients in Yorba’s face cleanser is Kigelia. “Kigelia is a clinically proven antibacterial and is known to aid in the natural treatment of very dry skin conditions and Eczema. It is packed with nutrients that aid in the repair of damaged or aging skin. Kigelia is also a highly effective anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredient”Yorba’s Website Being that I am now in my mid 30’s, taking care of my facial skin has a whole new meaning. I mean honestly I blew off caring about my skin until really recently. Knowing that I need to make this skin last and take care of it. I am only getting older and more wrinkles from here on out! LOL! Knowing this takes care of my aging skin really gives me a peace of mind. My friend couldn’t report the same levels of satisfaction so she decided to look into more permanent solutions from professionals at websites similar to thevictoriancosmeticinstitute.com.au. These products don’t work for everyone even if they are fantastic!

Yorba’s entire line is such high quality and it smells so natural and peaceful. You will instantly fall in love with these products and will come back to try out more products, I can assure you, you will be happy.
